Time To Say Goodbye



I walk on musical notes, sometimes, to feel the rhythm my life undertakes in this dusty sulfurous weather. Acid prickling my mind like glistening raindrops, evaporating against the wheatish contours, a touch too sharp, rendering me futile, paralyzed against the shearing pain that I am supposed to experience. Yet, I trudge along gently, carving music with every step, C major, A minor and B flat obeying my commands.

Perhaps, the moment is near, anticipated, yet dreaded, the time to say goodbye. How much I may try, I can not control fate, and the intricacies of destiny. Stuck in this web of constant motion, I flow with the tide, waiting to catch a glimpse of that elusive shore, where lives would dwell in music, dancing with the birds of glee.

Goodbye, today, as I embrace tomorrow, a new dawn, with yet another sun, floating on the lake, where rows my boat.

  5. Magnificent your words! Yes, you have to enjoy the music as an element that enhances the spirit, I can not go a day without music, when I take pictures almost always listen to music!

  6. Well .. your fiction wish were a reality for me :) times move on .. giving space to yet another day.. to heal up wounds .. to accelerate joy .. to struggle harder.. and sometimes just to ease oneself just as an object lying somewhere in the drawing room peeping through the window and watching times passing by :)

  8. Very thoughtful of you to put the footnote :P Would have wrongly assumed something else otherwise and left a "Good luck for future endeavors" note...Beautiful write-up!!

  9. Wow!! Such a wonderful first entry into the VisDare world! Very lyrical, weaving notes of life into its own song --- it puts a melody in one's head just in the way you use the words. Lovely take on the prompt. Welcome to the VisDare family --- hope to see more from you soon! :)

    2. Well, I would like your Twitter name so I can tweet your name/link to your VisDares as you post them. I don't do that every week, but sometimes I do, and I love to give credit where credit is due for great entries. :) No worries if you'd rather I not, though. :)
